Lake District cottages

Annabelle's verdict:

Magnificent scenery, vast open spaces and unspoilt villages make the Lake District a great choice if you want to escape for a few days. For a back-to-nature break without scrimping on luxury, the Lakeside Cottage Company is the answer; seventy stylish properties dotted around the Lakes, with flexible rental periods and every mod con you could wish for.

Recommended company: The Lakeland Cottage Company

The Lakeland Cottage Company says

The Lake District needs no introduction – suffice to say it’s a Unesco World Heritage Site, the UK’s first ever National Park and arguably the best place in Britain to stretch your legs and enjoy some eye-popping scenery.

There’s no shortage of holiday rental properties in the Lake District but if you are looking for the finest cottages, we think you’ll love what we offer.

We have hand-picked just 70 luxury properties, 55 of which have a four or five star rating with Visit England accreditation.

You will find a range of options in the North and South Lakes areas, with village, town, rural and lakeside locations.

Rental periods are flexible, from one night upwards. You can see live arrival day options, availability and prices for each of our properties on our website.

We’ve highlighted the most romantic cottages, our pick of the best family-friendly properties and those which are dog-friendly.

To give you a taste of the options available, we’ve picked out some particular favourites.

Wetherlam is one of three traditional stone two-bedroom cottages located directly on Coniston Water. There’s access to a private lakeshore and jetty and the attractions of Coniston itself are just over a mile away.

For sheer romance, it’s hard to beat Shepherds Nook, a characterful and cosy cottage in Kentmere with views of craggy fells and wild valleys.

Three Springs is just one of our dog-friendly family cottages. It has three bedrooms and is ideally located on the outskirts of Coniston with gorgeous views over the valley towards the lake.

Larger groups of family and friends will love Townson Ground House which cleverly combines characterful and cosy accommodation with plenty of space for up to 14 guests. Dating back to the 16th century, it oozes country house style without being remotely grand and there’s direct access to Coniston Water.
